Merstham Station Merstham Surrey RH1 3ED
Join North Downs Way Ambassadors Karol Zemek and Chris Howard for a half-day walk from Merstham to Reigate, passing through two of the best viewpoints on the whole of the NDW. After a wander through the Capability Brown gardens of Gatton Park and the Reigate Hill viewpoint, the walk peaks at Colley Hill, with its splendid Edwardian folly and sweeping views onto other parts of the North Downs, the Weald, Reigate and Gatwick Airport. We end with an optional visit to the tap room of the Pilgrim microbrewery, which serves not only delicious beer, but also local cider and gin.
Length: Around 7 km, which should take approximately 3 to 4 hours. Several sections feature ascents, and there is one steep descent.
Start: Merstham station, 14:00.
End: Pilgrim Brewery, West Street, Reigate.
